A few showers return Tuesday, severe storms possible Wednesday

Futurecast

Today will be the day we see rain chances return to most of the region, followed by our next threat of severe storms which will move in tomorrow (Wednesday).

This morning our temperatures are in the low to mid 70s with mostly cloudy skies. The ridge of high pressure that has been keeping us hot and dry is moving away, and that has opened up the door for a few isolated showers and storms to develop this afternoon. Much of this may be driven by the sea-breeze. South winds today will be breezy, at 10 to 15 miles per hour with gusts over 20mph. See the latest loop of futurecast below:

Despite the weakening high, it will be quite warm with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

It looks like Wednesday will bring our one threat for severe weather this week. The day will start out quiet, but a cold front moving into northeast Texas and Oklahoma will bring scattered thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday evening. High wind will be the primary threat, but large hail and a few tornadoes can’t be ruled out. The Storm Prediction Center indicates the severe threat will be highest along and north of I-30 where an ‘enhanced risk’ is in place. A ‘slight risk’ and ‘marginal risk’ extend further south to include much of east Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. 

Wednesday afternoon and evening severe weather threat.

Storms should lose their punch overnight, but we will have a few showers and lingering non-severe storms Thursday. 

Look for slight to scattered rain chances to continue Friday through the upcoming weekend. Add up the rain this week and most areas will be in the 1 to 2 inch accumulation range. We have been dry for the past week so the ground should be able to handle this, and no flash flooding is expected.
